Glass in Entry Door - Surveyor

I'm picking up a 2011 Surveyor 235RKS in a few weeks. FR apparently only has the "smoked/glazed" glass for the entry door. I would like to get tinted glass that I can see through and that also matches the tinted glass of the rest of the unit.
Anyone know where I can get it? Price? Suggestions?
Thanks,

I hated the frosted glass mine came with. I decided to remove the 4 dozen screws that held together the window frame, and took the sheet to the glass shop. I had them cut and bevel a dark bronze tinted piece of safety glass. $40. Its nice.

What turbopuppy said. It's easy to get apart and the glass is just a square piece. I've seen where people put plain safety glass in them and use the do-it-yourself glass etching kits available at craft stores to put a cool design or picture on them.

Just be sure to take note of how the window is all sealed when you take it apart an use the same products to put it back together. They usually use a good amount of butyl tape sealant behind the outer trim bezel and then caulk the outside of it with clear silicone.
